The REAL Reason Red Hot Chili Peppers Quit Weenie Roast [OC Weekly Editorial Cartoon]


A couple of weeks ago, the Red Hot Chili Peppers made international headlines when they couldn’t finish the final KROQ Weenie Roast at Irvine Meadows because lead singer Anthony Kiedis came down with a nasty stomach bug. But Weekly┬ácontributor Scott Feinblatt found out the REAL reason behind the bug. Take it awayx3, Scott!

For the past 35 years, Irvine Meadows has been been a beloved staple of OC concertgoers. From the pathway that connects its parking area to its fairgrounds, which necessitates a healthy and invigorating walk, to its many grassy areas, which have routinely enabled pre-concert picnics, the venue typifies that good ol’ homey concert environment. Even when the venue’s name was changed to the dreaded “Verizon Wireless Amphitheater,” the grounds retained that down-to-earth, friendly feeling. Furthermore, given the history of rock performances hosted by the venue (the first Lollapalooza, Lilith Fair, Michael Jackson, etc.) as well as numerous performances by the Pacific Symphony, the place is an important OC monument.

Alas, its endearing status as a beloved mecca for SoCal concertgoers does not protect it from its status as an expendable occupant of real estate. Thus, Irvine Company head Donald Bren is razing the site in order to erect apartment buildings. While luxury living is nice for those who can afford them, it is still a shame that the iconic amphitheater must go.

BOOM. Feel better, Anthony. And if it makes you feel any better, the rest of OC is vomiting alongside you.
